The modern fascination with micro- and nano-sized materials can actually be traced back further to the 1960s and ‘70s when the first few reported attempts were made to use nanoparticles for controlled drug delivery.  In Nanoparticles in Biology and Medicine: Methods and Protocols, experts in the field present a wide range of methods for synthesis, surface modification, characterization, and application of nano-sized materials (nanoparticles) in life science and medical fields, mostly for drug delivery. The methods presented cover all stages of nanoparticle manufacturing, modification, analysis, and applications.  Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.


Comprehensive and cutting-edge, Nanoparticles in Biology and Medicine: Methods and Protocols will help the beginner become familiar with this fascinating field and will provide scientists at all levels of expertise with easy-to-follow practical advice needed to make, modify, and analyze nanoparticles of their choice and to use them in a wide range of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications, including functional protein studies, drug delivery, immunochemistry, imaging, and many others.

From the book reviews:“This is another of the series ‘Methods in Molecular Biology’ and covers various aspects of the synthesis, applications and characterization of nanoparticles. … this book makes a very useful source of information for those interested in how nanoparticles can be used for various imaging techniques and applications such as drug delivery. Those wishing to synthesise nanoparticles for these applications will also find it a useful guide with easy to follow methods and guidance.” (Bobbi Bradford, BTS Newsletter – The British Toxicology Society, Issue 43, Winter, 2013)“This is a how-to-do-it manual on the applications of nanoparticles in modern medicine. … This book is of great value for anyone who is involved in the manufacturing, modification, analysis, or application of nanoparticles for use in medicine. … This volume represents a comprehensive and cutting-edge resource for investigators at all levels who have an interest in the application of nanoparticle technology to a wide range of uses in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields … .” (Thomas L. Pazdernik, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2013)“This book aims to cover the complete production process for such nanoparticles, including their synthesis, physicochemical characterization, and toxicity and efficacy evaluation. … the articles are clearly structured, and the protocols are easy to follow. … The index listing both keywords and abbreviations helps the novice researcher to find the desired protocol. … this book could be useful to researchers from a broad range of disciplines interested in protocols for methods outside their direct field of expertise.” (Eleonore Fröhlich, ChemMedChem, Issue 8, 2013)
